They intentionally got in front of a drunk and put themselves in a position where she could hit them. And put it on video. The insurance claims and lawsuits should be ...interesting. Have they never *seen* the billboards all over Florida bragging how much money the lawyer got for their clients?

It's good that the reporter was reporting live from the side of the road because it the story really needed that context.  I'd have made her report from inside the studio.  I guess that's why I'm not a news producer.

Why yes, I am cranky this morning, why do you ask?

a witness said that she pulled her car in front of Sharp when Sharp made a complete stop in the center lane

Florida, oh Florida, what will we do when the ocean takes you away from us?

Pray for Georgia.

Huh, for once my hometown is on Fark and it's not homicide related.

Typical Florida woman genes

I don't think she's too Sharp

Lucky drunk.  She's getting to use parts of the interstate no one ever uses.  Gonna change my driving habits.  Does insurance cover drunk-like driving?  "I wasn't drunk.  I just thought the curb on the right side of the highway wasn't getting any use."

Was gonna say something about the Streisand effect, but realized that it appears that Subby has has misled me.

I was surprised too. I escaped in '87. What a pit of a place.

Went to high school in the Dunbar community, now I live out in Lehigh where the growhouses are.

Does every article now have to be converted into a slideshow video with horrible background music with the text of the article overlayed??

Getting pretty sick of that.

It's a shame they didn't run her off the road.

Lived a few blocks away from FMHS. Joined the AF and got the hell out of there as fast as the plane could fly me. I don't get why so many people who leave come back. I suspect a curse that kicks in after 10 years or so.

she's cute.

The real tragedy here is the vertical video...

That's a hard 25.   If she reaches 30 she'll be able to convince the Golden Corral to give her the senior discount every time.

If my dog had that broad's face, I'd shave his butt and teach him to walk backwards.

Crazy woman driver

They kept saying "this guy". Why do they assume it's a guy? So sexist.
 
2017-09-05 02:22:47 PM  
Wait. That's all? No mobile meth lab and a Cuban family hiding in the trunk? No cartel ties? She wasn't armed with explosives at automatic weapons?

Jeebus! By Floriduh standards, the case is barely worth prosecuting.

Dear website... video is not when you pan across a couple stills and put writing on it.  At best, that's something reserved for a gif.  I'm not saying you can't do it, just don't call it a video in your headline.  You are way over the clickbaity line.

Your jaw will drop when you click on this video link and see this one weird trick that all [YOUR HOMETOWN] millionaires use when driving in Florida!

Came here to say this. This is why I don't watch local TV news. WhyTF do they have to be "on the scene" when the "scene" happened hours ago? Unless there's some aftermath to show ("I'm standing knee deep in dead puppies and twisted wreckage after the horrible explosion"), just report from the damn studio!

Also Subby (and other submitters), can we please stop posting stories with witness videos from said TV news sites? Newspapers and online news sites tend to just show the raw footage, TV sites make you watch their crappy report. I just READ the damn story on your page! Just get to the video of the pile of dead puppies I'm supposed to be shocked about!

/also cranky

The video is after the stills and the article.

That mugshot screams "white trash".

she looks 12.. how is she 25??

You are correct, this is pretty tame by Florida standards.  Even the Portland story today beats this, swallowing heroin and throwing a toddler in a passing car.  Step up your game Floridawoman.

You don't now she's white, you racist. She could be Belgian for all you know.

Wow, that's a buried lead!

How many tank tops do you need to wear, lady?  Is that the Florida lower-class equivalent of popped collars?

Motorists really get a raw deal in this country. You can't even drive after a couple of drinks and run over pedestrians without some asshole making a criminal case out of it.

Thanks Obama
